I just now measured my spare gasket. Its 13 thousands thick. As already posted I too believe the dog bone piece on the cross shift rod might be loose on the shaft. Its just a few bolts and some copper tubes to remove this. Even if this turns out to be fine you have the opportunity to seal up the housing better than it is now. So many seap oil and cause driveway spots.

Another thing to check are the 2 rubber bushing that help attach the shift cylinder to the mounting bracket on top back of the transmission . I have seen where this rubber is “to soft” and does not make a solid attachment. The extra “play” or movement in shift cylinder prevents the transmission to shift properly.

Fred, Take a look at the mount for the main shift cylinder. Are there washers under the stand? THere should be 3 thick washers under there. If not install two washers on each bolt, between the transmission and the triangular stand. Also make sure you don't have too thick of a gasket under the transmission cover.

Looking at the mount for the vacuum cylinder, it is attached flush to the case: no spacers, washers, etc. The rubber bushings there look OK - not pristine but certainly not rotted or significantly cracked. So I guess some bits'll be coming apart shortly. What is the recommendation on the overall thickness (height) for the washers under the mount? Also, what's the nature of the gasket material, is it prone to getting destroyed by opening the case? (if it's fragile and thickness is such a critical issue, I won't open things up until I have a replacement in hand) Lastly, where can I get the rubber bushings? (if I am takings things apart, I might as well restore the elements at hand)

I’ve used new shock link rubber bushing that you can get from Steele rubber parts and use them. Remember any repositioning of the shift cylinder either by replacing the rubber bushings or putting washers under the shift cylinder will require you to readjust the neutral position of Clevis pin in shift lever. I’ve always used the thick head bolt washers for the spacers for shift cylinder.

Boy, times have changed. I just went to the Steele rubber site. You use to be able to buy single shock link bushings for 2 or 3 dollars each. Now Steele sells a set for more than $100.. I’ve finished putting together the last Cord I’ll probably ever be working on. I have some new bushing that you can have free of charge. Just PM me with you name and address and I’ll send them out to you.
